Ready In:




  • Cut each wing into two pieces by separating at the joint; discard the tips.
  • Heat the ginger slices in the oil in a wok; add a third of the wings at a time and brown.
  • When the wings are browned, drain the oil and remove the ginger slices from the wok.
  • Add the oyster sauce, sherry, sugar soy sauce, and water.
  • Place the browned wings in the wok and simmer, covered, for 10 to 12 minutes.
  • Cook another 12 to 15 minutes with the lid off, basting frequently with the sauce.
  • When the wings are tender and nicely glazed, they are ready to be eaten.

  1. Well, since I begged for this recipe to be posted I figured I'd better get around to reviewing it! I made these last night but I didn't have the sherry so I had to omit it and I didn't add water because I baked them rather than making them on the stovetop. I also added 1/4 tsp garlic powder and 1/4 tsp ground ginger since I had no fresh gingerroot. I baked them at 350' for 1 hour. They were so simple and really delicious! But I made a mistake and put all the sauce on them before baking them. I should have reserved some to put on them the last 15-20 minutes they were in the oven. Next time I'll know better. ;) Thank's so much for posting! It's one I will definately make again!


I live in a small town in New York. I am a student, and during the summers, I work two part time jobs. I love to cook. I cook everything and anything, but my true passion is taking a recipe, and truly making it my own. I collect cookbooks, and I am a huge fan of the old Julia Child cookbooks. Besides cooking, I love to do photography, and am constantly reading. I also enjoy singing in the car...haha:) I cook mainly for some very un-picky eaters (aka, my dear family), I am lucky in that respect...but, they seem to constantly only request their favorites:) I will try anything once, and if I like it...I will lick the bowl! ;) <img src="">
